Makeup Favorites of 2016

Thursday, December 29, 2016

Hi girls !
This year flew by so fast and I've tested so many products, I can't believe it. Also I discovered many great items which I'd totally recommend to you. For my favorites post I left out some product categories just because I talked about them a lot in the past and they don't need another mention or I simply didn't find anything that wowed me (such as eye shadows, since I didn't use them that much this year). But here are some shiny, amazing goodies. See what I loved last year: here. Also I recommend you reading my post about my favorite mascaras: here.

L'oreal Infallible Mattifying primer
For many years I've neglected primers and such because my skin is too oily. However when I found this one, I used it every single day. It's a silicone based one and feels very smooth on the skin. It prepares my skin for makeup and leaves it velvety matt. Definitely recommend it for mixed/oily skin to make your makeup last longer. Also mentioned here.

Lancôme Effacernes Longue Tenue Concealer
I think I discover many great products when I shop. And that's when I bought this concealer since it gave so much pigmentation on my hand. It's the same on the skin as it covers everything beautifully, without heavy feeling. Also great for under the eyes. I talked about it in the post: here.

Benefit Hoola bronzer
I picked up this mini sized bronzer on the trip in Italy and have been in love ever since. The powder is very finely mild, so it doesn't fall out too much and makes application very easy. Doesn't look muddy or too orange, so it's perfect. In winter I do tend to use just a tiny amount because I'm so pale, however I do really love it. It just adds a nice amount of warmth and definition to my face.

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge - Pale Pink
I bought a Bobbi Brown Mini Must Haves set in July and out of everything, this product really impressed me. It's a blusher and lipstick in one. Pink is usually not a color I gravitate to, however it surprised me. On cheeks it's a nice muted pink and on the lips it looks absolutely gorgeous. It might be drying, however it is long staying. Being creamy it does get a bit dirty, however I like the packaging with the mirror and the texture a lot, so I don't care.

Lancôme Grandiôse Liner - Saphir Mirifique
This eyeliner is just amazing: color and everything. Definitely feels high end and worth the money. The blue is extra bright and it's nicely pigmented. It stays on all day long and is very easy to remove because it just crumbles off. The packaging is also pretty and the tip is sharp, however I don't really care for the twistable lid. I talked about it and showed it on my eyes: here.

Golden Rose Brow Color Tinted Eyebrow Mascara 02
Another surprise in makeup department. I was really loyal to Catrice Eyebrow Filler which was in my last years favorites. But in October I got this very affordable eyebrow mascara by Golden Rose. I love the brush since it's so tiny and the color is perfect for me because it's so ashy blonde. It's cute being that small but it just does great job filling my eyebrows. You can get it here.

Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray
Another game changer in my makeup routine. It's the best setting spray I've tried so far. It really does pro long the wear of makeup. Plus the spritz is really fine, so It doesn't leave my face too wet.

Makeup Revolution Precision Pro Brush Oval Face brush
Big thanks for this lovely tool goes to I didn't understand the hype over these brushes and when I got them I fell in love right away. Even having RT and Zoeva face brushes sometimes doesn't help blend in Revlon Colorstay foundation. And this Oval brush definitely makes a difference ! It's so easy and very quick to blend foundation. Plus it's really soft. The only thing I dislike is cleaning it, because it has many more bristles and everything get stuck in it. I've also tried a contour brush which is lovely as well. You can get the set here.

Real Techniques Mini Eraser Sponge
Another great product I got from in October and have been using religiously. Though on the picture is a new one, since the older one looks terrible because my cat attacked it. I love how small the sponge is and it's just perfect for all the small corners on the face: inner corners of the eyes, around the nose... I use it for blending concealer and later for "baking".
